My siblings and I...

My siblings and I inherited land form our father when he passed in 1990. we sold the land in 2017. How can we find the FMV as of 1990? and part of the land was a tree farm and considered conservation land, does this matter? Thank you

Accountant's Assistant: The Accountant will know how to help. Is there anything else the Accountant should be aware of?

I don't think so other than the land is located in Chatham county, NC

You can try the Chatham County NC Tax Assessor site.

http://ustaxdata.com/nc/chatham/Search.cfm

If you or anyone else is in the county you can go to the courthouse and request to see the tax records back when this was changed to you and your siblings.

The transfer back then should still be on record would show the value.

Does that fact that the tree farm is considered a conservation land?

It will not change your reporting issue no.

Different expert here - my name is ***** ***** please allow me to provide you with additional information that you will find helpful even though you have already rated the first expert's answer.

The assessed value (as provided by the Tax Assessor) is usually ALWAYS CONSIDERABLY LESS than the FMV of property.

My best advice would be to contact a local real estate agent/broker who will be able to provide you with a more accurate figure as it pertains to FMV.

Thank you and best regards,

Barb
